This weekend sees the Imps make the long trip to Barrow where they will look to keep their unbeaten run of seven matches in all competitions going. The Imps grabbed brilliant 3-0 victory over Braintree in mid week which moved them up to 15th place with 20 points. Barrow on the other hand are just below the Imps in 18th place with 18 points from their 17 matches so far.
The confidence is sky high coming in to this match for the Imps, this superb run has seen the Imps climb the table and also get a cup run going, both things that will help the club financially as we near the January transfer window. This fixture last season at Holker Street saw the Imps lose 1-0 in what was an extremely low point for the Imps where the result was blamed on the long travel by our former manager Steve Tilson. One of many excuses during his tenure here.
Barrow come into this match in decent form, they lost at the weekend but before that they had a run of two wins and two draws in the league and I am sure they will look at this match as a good chance to grab three points and leapfrog the Imps in the table. To do this Barrow will need to be sharp and their home form hasn't been amazing, conceding more goals then they have scored so far this season. The goals they have scored have generally come from Adam Boyes who has scored 7 so far in the league this season, if the Imps defence can get on top of him then we will be half way to nullifying their attack.
Lincoln should have no reason to change a winning eleven as there has been no injuries picked up and no suspensions. Morgan, Larkin and Oliver will all be desperate to get back into the starting eleven but the form of the side over the past few matches means it is highly likely that these players will have to sit and wait for their turn and grab it when it comes. A good position for Holdsworth to be in now, there are several players capable of performing in some positions as we begin to enter the busy winter period.
A tough game as they always are for the Imps but I do feel that riding the wave of confidence that this team is at the moment that we will come away from this long trip with all three points and we will move even further up the table. Worst case result for me would be to see the Imps play out a draw, I just can't see us losing at the moment with how well the side is playing as a team. Long may it continue.
